Uptown Girl

Dallas' Uptown Country Home proves to be one of my new favorite finds. Affordable, adorable, and chic, Uptown Country is owned by Jenny Grumbles and has tons of cute accessories, gifts, bedding, furniture, lighting, original paintings, and vintage finds. Jenny's signature color is pink
so you can find plenty of this girly hue there, which you know I just love!
About a year ago, the Dallas Morning News did a really cute story on Jenny and her fabulous pink condo in Dallas that she decorated and furnished on a $5,000 budget! She sent me the most recent photos of her place and it's just as cute as ever!

Jenny's Living Room- she found her sofa and chair at IKEA, bookcase at Pier 1, her mirrored coffee table at an antique store (her mom then painted the base a bold pink) and her cute cherry-blossoms painting that her mom painted as well!

Her Dining Room is really fun- the pedestal dining table is from IKEA (her mom distressed it to make it look a bit more shabby), her faux bamboo Chippendale chairs she found at an antique store and then repainted them, and the geometric mirror frames are from her own store that she spray painted in a white high gloss paint

She even made over her laundry room (also known as her "laundry bar"). She removed the doors and painted the nook. The washer and dryer are behind the white curtains- what a clever idea to dress up this normally hidden area!
Her glam bedroom- love her new pink benches

Barbie prints above a mirrored vanity table and ghost chair add some pizzazz to her pink dressing area

A vintage pink hair dryer adds a bit of whimsy to this sitting area. I am in love with all the gold accents!

Her pink color scheme is even carried into the bathroom. A sunburst mirror, adorable pink wallcovering and girly accessories make this bathroom tres chic!

I love this wall mounted shelf display. A cute pink and white bench gives visitors a quaint place to sit

Oh yeah, did we mention that Jenny paints too? What can't this girl do?! She sells her original paintings at Uptown Country Home and here are a few of them below...

Cute cute!

soooooooooooooo adorable! I love the bathroom and the laundry room!!! those ikea sofas are the best deal in the country. $350 I think for the sofa and it's really comfortable too.
